Cambodian Disabled People’s Organization was established in 1994 as a movement of Cambodian persons with disabilities. CDPO is a membership-based, non-governmental organization, representing persons with disabilities in Cambodia and working towards becoming “The voice of persons with disabilities in Cambodia”. CDPO has differentiated itself from other Cambodian disability organizations by building a national network of member DPOs/WWDFs. CDPO does not provide goods or rehabilitation services but rather represents DPOs/WWDFs nationally and advocates for their rights and interests as well as helping to build their rights awareness and capacity towards achieving a life with dignity for persons with disabilities. To date, CDPO has a membership base of 73 Organizations of Persons with Disabilities (OPDs) and a Federation of persons with disabilities, including 10 Women with Disabilities Forums (WWDFs). On 15 March 2010, CDPO was granted a permission letter from MOI to work with 46 commune councils within 25 provinces/ cities in Cambodia.
